    I love the feeling i get when i tackle a job that i have little previous experence with and everything works right when i am done.
    Just finished up most of the under dash wiring on the 55 at work today, and all the little ele. guages and lights and stuff work, pretty kick ass, it made me feel real good.

    *pats self on back*:D

    Cool, where do you work normally? Got any pics of this '55 you speak of?

    My most recent was was tearing apart an NP241 and swapping out the input...no clue what I was doing but it turns freely and shifts. :D

    Funny you mentioned that. I had my first experience with multiplex wiring today. Wiring is such a pain in the ass.:doah:

    I get that feeling regardless of whether or not I have much knowledge about what Im doing. most of the time I at least think I know exactly what Im doing and it still doesnt work. good job though, I hate wiring.

    I always like that too. Especially on my Suburban where I have very little experience. That is one of the things that keeps it fun.

    Education is expensive. Either time, money or both. Learn from the bad days, enjoy the good more.
